As one of superheroes with magnificent ability and sophisticated look, Iron Man, without any wonder, has grown popularly, not only amongst kids but adults as well. As for this matter, Iron Man theme turns out to be one of the most favorite birthday ideas. To perfect the party, an Iron Man birthday cake is pretty much favorable. To make it true, there are some ideas to follow.
If you think making the whole body will be complicated and expensive, the Iron Man’s helmet can still represent the theme well. Instead of just drawing the face or the front part of Iron Man’s helmet, you can make a 3-D head of Iron Man. In other words, it is, yes, still a 3-D cake, but it is going to be simpler since what you need to do is only to shape the head of Iron Man. First, prepare a rectangular red cake. You can either bake it by your own or simply purchase it at any bakery. Importantly, it has to be in red color since Iron Man is widely known for its red iron clothes. Then, mix some frosting with yellow food coloring. This is to draw the details or pattern on the Iron Man’s helmets.
Not satisfied just by the head? No worries. Making a full body of Iron Man armor is pretty much possible, though it requires more patience, details, and longer time to make. Similarly, you will need a rectangular cake. Yet, it does not have to be in red color since this cake will become the basis to shape the Iron Man’s body later. Go find an image of Iron Man’s full body so that you will get clear outline on how you should shape and then slowly cut the cake. Once it is perfectly shaped, prepare some food colorings; yellow, red, brown, black, and then mix each to some amount of frosting. To draw details or color the body, you can put the colored frosting into pastry bag. Then, follow the outline. Make sure you carefully draw the details right and color them neatly.
Iron Man 2-D Cake
If the preceding two versions cannot work well with you, making a 2-D Iron Man birthday cake is helpful. Bake or purchase a rectangular cake as the background of Iron Man picture. Also, make some different colored frosting. Color the basis with chocolate frosting or any color of frosting you like as long as it is single color. If you are not too sure using your imagination, print out a picture of Iron Man. The picture does not have to be head only, an “Iron Man in action” picture is possible to use. Next step, similar to usual drawing job, make an outline and then color it with the frosting you prepared before. Also, write a birthday message on the cake.
